The theory behind Quest Fitness is that everyone’s fitness journey is unique. Sure, you may share the same goal as the next person, but how you get there can be very different. Not everyone wants to run miles, lift weights or do push-ups, and not everyone has the self motivation to do at home videos. What we do first, at Quest Fitness, is sit down and talk game plan. We need to be on the same page on how we will get through all the different phases of your workout. Then, we schedule times to meet. Yes, it will take time, but you will have the support that you need through all the struggles. Your Quest for a more fit you starts here.

If you’re considering working with a personal trainer, my advice is:
1. Go for it. I’ve never seen these kind of results, nor been this happy with my body before. It addition to keeping me consistent, Ray knew how to push me enough so after every workout I had that wonderful feeling of exhaustion and accomplishment, knowing I couldn’t possibly have done any more work.
2. If you live in the GR area, work with Ray Shonk at Quest Fitness. He knows how and when to change things up so you continue to see results. He’s basically a fitness genius/psycho and you’ll learn A LOT from him. Bonus: he’s a bit of a sci-fi/Deadpool/dark humor kind of nerd and not at all a dumb jock.

The answer to that question depends on the end goal. A lot of people feel strength training should be done first to augment the amount of fat burnt during cardio, because the strength training will burn glycogen stores. But, because of the rest periods and the shorter bursts of exercise, this will not likely affect your glycogen levels. However working in such a state can have negative effects such as low blood insulin, and a strong perception of fatigue. Currently there is no research showing that strength training before cardio increases fat burn. Strength training first may reduce your intensity causing your cardio training to suffer.
If the goal is strength, then resistance training would be the best way to start. If weight loss or aerobic endurance are the goal then hit the cardio first. Alternating the 2 is a great way to train both.
